Latest Acclaim

Michael Brown, who played a piano recital Sunday afternoon as part of the Steinway Series at the Smithsonian Museum of American Art, is identified as a pianist-composer, that musical persona with a glorious past. Pianist-composers go back to the likes of Mozart, Clementi and Beethoven in the late 18th century and had their heyday in such figures as Liszt, Chopin and Gottschalk. But after the careers of Rachmaninoff, Bartok and Prokofiev in the mid-20th century, there was a distinct falling off. Presumably Brown would like to change that.
